  Description:
    Abstract:
      The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Casper Field Office administrative area is located in east-central Wyoming and includes approximately 8.5 million acres of land in most of Natrona County and all of Converse, Platte, and Goshen counties.  This Record of Decision (ROD) approves the Casper Resource Management Plan (RMP).  The ROD and RMP provides overall direction for managment of all resources on BLM-administered land in the Casper Field Office planning area.

      This data was created for the December 7th, 2007, Record of Decision and Approved Casper Resource Management Plan (ROD/ARMP).  The purpose of this dataset is to show areas in the Casper Field Office subject to a Controlled Surface Use (CSU) restriction.  The dataset was created using multiple datasets (many layers) from the GIS project files.  As new information is received, this dataset is updated.  This dataset is for December 7, 2007.

      This plan provides direction for managing BLM-administered public lands in Natrona, Converse, Platte, and Goshen counties.

      The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Casper Field Office administrative area is located in east central Wyoming and includes approximately 8.5 million acres of land in most of Natrona County and all of Converse, Platte, and Goshen counties.  The Record of Decision (ROD) approves the Resource Management Plan (RMP). The ROD and RMP provides overall direction for management of all resources on BLM-administered land in the Casper Field Office planning area.

      The Decisions Numbers, Area Name, Restriction and Type are included  in the attribute tables.

      White-tail Prairie Dog and Black-tail Prairie Dog - 2007 - The source of this data was through the Western Association of Fish and Wildife Agencies (WAFWA), Interstate Prairie Dog Conservation Team.
      The Digital Ortho Quads (DOQs) were analyzed for the presence of potential BTPD colonies.  Once identified, the potential colony boundaries were digitized using techniques developed in Grenier et al. (2004b).  DOQs were analyzed as they became available, and the entire process was completed by the spring of 2005.  A total of 916 polygons were identified after the activity status surveys were conducted in 2003.  The centroid of each polygon was determined using ArcMap 9.0 and uploaded to a GPS unit (Gamin 12XL) as a waypoint.  Waypoints were then flown to and classified using methods outlined in Grenier et al. (2004a).  To minimize observer biases, new observers were trained by one observer from the 2003 flight survey, with no less than four hours of training.  A fixed-wing airplane (Cessna 210, 180, Piper Supercub, or Artic Tern) with a pilot and one observer was utilized to field check waypoints.  Flights were conducted approximately 500 feet (152 m) above ground level at a speed of approximately 100 mph (160 kph) while above waypoints.  The observer recorded whether the waypoint was a BTPD colony or some other feature (ant colony, dirt mound, etc.).  For waypoints where a BTPD colony was observed, the observer assessed activity status of that colony according to methods outlined in Grenier et.al. (2004a).  All surveys were completed between 20March - 20 June 2006.  From the BLACK-TAILED PRAIRIE DOG BASELINE ACTIVITY STATUS UPDATE, WYOMING COMPLETION REPORT.  2006 - Wyoming Game and Fish, a Digital Polygon Graphic (DPG) product, originally produced this data.   The data was created in and is stored in ArcView 3.2 software for Windows operating system. This product is indirectly derived from the USGS NAPP(National Aerial Photography Program), which according to the National Mapping Program do not currently carry quantified accuracy statements. NAPP photography's are acquired at 20,000 feet about mean terrain with a 6-inch focal length lens. The flight lines are quarter quad-centered on the 1:24,000-scale USGS maps. NAPP photographs have an approximate scale of 1:40,000, and are flown in color infrared. The data were obtained during the summers of 2001 and 2002. These positions divide a 7.5-minute quadrangle map into quarter sections. Each 7.5-minute quadrangle map was interpreted for any sign of Black-tailed Prairie Dog towns. Once towns were identified a point location was then transferred to a DOQ for digitizing.  (NAPP images are not geo-referenced.) All towns digitized did not exceed 1:5,000-scale.

      Prebles Jumping Mouse - This dataset is the Endangered and Threatened Wildlife for the Special Regulations for the Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse from the Fish and Wildlife Service. CRITICAL HABITAT for the Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse.  This dataset was drived from the named Creeks and the Final Rule was used for the information on the Prebles Jumping Mouse. The appropriate Creek were used for this dataset.  See Federal Register/Vol. 69, No. 98/Thursday, May 20th, 2004/Rules & Regulations.

      Visual Resource Management - This dataset depicts the Visual Resource Inventory for Visual Resources for the Casper Field Office. The shape file includes attributes for Scenic Quality, Sensitivity, and Distance Zones and is representative of existing landscapes for the Casper Field Office in 2003. A complete write-up of the inventory process was completed in 2003.  The purpose of this dataset is to provide information on Visual Resource Management for the Casper Field Office. The data contained within the theme will be used primarily for land use planning decisions and the implementation purposes for the Casper Field Office. Planning decisions will be made using Arcview, ARCGIS and other software. The data contained within the themes will be used primarily for land use planning decisions and the implementation process for the Casper Field Office.   This dataset depicts the Visual Resource Inventory Classes for the Casper Field Office. This data set is a compilation of Scenic Quality Units, Sensitivity and Distance Zones. The process by which these factors were compiled included importing the appropriate shape files, selecting by attributes, creating a priority system, merging and dissolving on appropriate fields. Scenic Quality Units were derived through evaluation of landform, vegetation, water, color, scarcity, adjacent scenery, and cultural modifications. All key components were except cultural modification were rated on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest. The scale for cultural modification was -4 to +2. The sum of the individual units. Scenic quality units receiving a final score of 18 or better received an A, scores ranging form 12-17 are equivalent to a B rating; with final scores less than 12 received a rating of "c". Distance Zones were derived using viewshed analysis. Viewshed was calculated for both single points and linear features. Point locations included campgrounds and historic cultural resources for which setting may contribute to overall site significance. Linear features included the North Plate River, perennial fishing streams, all major travel corridors and selected secondary routes. Viewshed for foreground/middleground areas were calculated for a distance of 3 miles, with a viewer height of 3 miles and an object height of 0. Points were placed every quarter mile along linear features. All calculations were done using Arc GIS and 30 meter DEMS. Viewshed analysis was not completed for management areas and areas of disturbance such as oil & gas fields, mine locations, agricultural area, urban areas, recreation areas and Habitat Management Areas. The mapped locations were defined as the foreground. All remaining portions of the field office were defined as being within the background or seldom seen areas. Sensitivity: Important use categories identified, divided into individual Sensitivity Level Rating Units (SLRUs) and rated accordingly. Many categories overlapped especially those SLRUs with strong linear features. Therefore, a resource use priority system was created to identify the overriding sensitivity level of any given tract of land within the planning area. Existing disturbances were considered during this process. The priority system established by team members resulted in the following ranking for resource use sensitivity levels: urban, energy development, cultural resources and historic trails, recreation areas (including the North Platte River), travel corridors, streams and reservoirs (not previously included in the developed recreation areas), agricultural lands, background and seldom seen areas. Key observation areas for SLRUs were mapped using several different themes. Boundaries were defined using the delineated distance zones. VRM classes were developed for public lands by overlaying the Scenic quality, Distance Zones and Sensitivity levels. The following matrix is used to determine VRM Classes resulting from this process. Class boundaries may be adjusted, during the RMP to reflect resource allocation decisions made for the planning area. VRM Class I was not established for the Casper Field Office as it is reserved for Special Management areas (i.e. Wilderness Study Areas).

      Sage Grouse Core Areas - This data set represents sage-grouse core areas as defined by the Governor's Sage-grouse Implementation Team and is based on a density model developed by Kevin Doherty (National Audobon Society). Core areas provide key habitat for sage-grouse. This data set was developed to delineate sage-grouse breeding and nesting habitat in Wyoming. Special consideration was given to habitat that was not already impacted by human influences (oil and gas, subdivisions, etc.).  For more information on the density data this data set is based on, contact Kevin Doherty (National Audobon Society) or Nyssa Whitford (Wyoming Game and Fish Department).  Contact the Wyoming Game and Fish Department for access to this data set. No third party distribution.  This data set is for use at statewide and regional scales and should not be used at a scale larger than 1:100,000.  Wyoming Game and Fish Department

      Water - Hydrographic features for Wyoming at 1:100,000-scale, including perennial and intermittent designations and Strahler stream order attributes for streams. Does not include man-made ditches, canals and aqueducts. The data  was originally produced by USGS, a Digital Line Graph (DLG) product, though  this product was enhanced (edgematched, some linework and attributes corrected, stream order attribute added).   A subset of this dataset is also available for distribution, including only major streams (order 4 to 7) and major lakes and reservoirs. In order to  reduce the size of this subset, the line segments were dissolved to remove  unncessary segments. Use_Constraints:
      Wyoming only. This data should never be used a scale larger than 1:100,000. The data is only as accurate as the source maps it was produced from, and use  is dependent on the date of the sources and quality at which they were produced.  Point of Contact for Hydrology.

      Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
            This product is directly derived from the USGS DLGs, which according to the
            National Mapping Program do not currently carry quantified accuracy statements.
            However, procedures used by the NMP to validate the attribute accuracy
            involve computerized checking of attribute codes against a table of
            valid codes to endure that each attribute in a file is valid for the
            category. A manual process involving proof plots is used to verify
            correct application of codes.

            The additional attribute added by Wyoming Gap Analysis, stream order,
            automatic generation by a ordering program. The coding was checked
            by displaying each order as a different color on screen, and special
            attention was paid to braided streams or other complicated areas of
            stream connection. The Strahler order attributes are correct only so far
            as the connectivity and completeness of the hydrographic network
            is represented due to generalizations at the 1:100,000-scale. Obviously,
            there will be differentiation in order at the larger 1:24,000-scale
            because of the more accurate representations of streams at that scale.

       Process_Description:
              Raw DLG data (optional format) for Wyoming was converted to Arc/Info format
              1:62,000-scale quads with a 2 meter coordinate resolution (fuzzy tolerance).
              These quadrangles were then tiled together into 1:100,000-scale quadrangles.
              During the process of tiling the 1:100,000-scale quadrangles into a statewide
              coverage, checking was done for proper feature alignment along the edges of
              the quads (edgematching). Streams or other hydrographic features with a
              positional offset (edge mismatch) of less than or equal to 200 m were
              snapped together by splitting the difference between them. In certain areas,
              it was necessary to refer to USGS 1:24,000-scale topographic maps to
              correctly determine the method of joining arcs. Editing changes included
              snapping endpoints of arcs together, adding or moving arc vertices, and
              adding new arcs to join or lengthen existing features. All arc features
              representing canals, ditches, or other man-made features were removed.
              Label errors which were identified by visual comparisons with paper maps
              were corrected.

          Process_step:
            Process_description:
              Following edgematching and other corrections to the original DLG data,
              all natural linear features were ordered, by major drainage (the state
              wide data was divided into 7 different drainages: North Platte, Belle
              Fourche, Crow, Wind River/Bighorn, Snake, Bear, Yellowstone) using the
              Strahler ordering method. The direction of flow of natural hydrographic
              features was adjusted using the Arc/Info TRACE command to best approximate
              the direction of flow in the drainage and its basins. A Strahler-ordering
              fortran program developed by USGS hydrologist, K. Lanfear, was applied to
              assign stream orders based on directional flow within the drainage. In
              cases of wide rivers represented by shorelines (instead of a stream
              centerline), braided rivers or stream networks interconnected circularly,
              the ordering had to rectified by interactive checking and editing. Wetlands,
              lakes, ponds and terminal reservoirs are not ordered. Streams flowing into
              Wyoming from other states (North Platte and Bear River drainages) were
              ordered based on visual inspection of source streams on 1:100,000-scale
              USGS maps of adjacent states (Colorado and Utah). Following the ordering
              and checking process, the individual drainages were appended back into
              a statewide coverage.
